Inside this Topic Guide
What began in the late 1980's as a relatively small-scale opening-up of the Chinese economy to the West has evolved into a process that is so all-encompassing that it has fundamentally reshaped the Chinese economy allowing those outside of China significant access to this lucrative and growing market.
Market regulation and infrastructure has evolved to support this process and continues to do so. For example, the outbound and foreign investment frameworks and infrastructure have been revised, Free Trade Zones, Shanghai-Hong Kong Stock Connect, internationalisation of RMB, and other measures aim to ease limits on foreign ownership of financial services in China.
This Topic Guide provides in-depth commentary on the latest trends and developments in this area and allows easy access to briefing notes and other resources that will enable you to track the evolution and opening up of Chinese markets to-date and going forwards.
